Valmistume järgmiseks käsitöökruiisiks/Preparing for the next handicraft cruise

Oktoobris toimub teatavasti soomlaste Burda Style Finland korraldatud käsitöökruiis. Osalesin 2016. ja 2017.a., tegin rätikute konstrueerimise töötoa ja iga kord disainisin rätiku, mida kudusime koos. Meeldetuletuseks 2016. ja 2017.a. rätikud:
As we all know, in October handicraft cruise organized by Burda Style Finland takes place. I took part in 2016 and 2017, made a workshop on shawl construction and each time designed a shawl for knitting along. To remind, these are the shawls of 2016 and 2017:
Täna tuli Burda Style Finland peatoimetaja ja kruiiside korraldaja Marianne Koskimies Tallinna ja tõi mulle lõngu järgmiseks disainiks. Lõuna-Aafrikas on suhteliselt uus lõngafirma Adéle's Mohair, millel tekib ka ladu Soomes. Nii et soovijad saavad lõnga hankida. Nagu nimest ilmneb, toodab firma üsna palju mohääri, seda erinevas jämeduses ja erineva faktuuriga. Nt on buklee ja on ka linase ja mohääri segu ja muud huvitavat. Täna arutasimegi, mida teha. Salli algus on Marianne oma, hiljuti alustatud. Sama muster, nagu minu Võrgulise puhul (ainult teine laius ja pole vist nii palju ääresilmuseid).
Today Marianne Koskimies, the editor in chief of Burda Style Finland and cruise organizer arrived to Tallinn and brought me some yarns for a future design. There is a relatively new yarn manufacturer in South Africa, Adéle Mohair that will eventually have a storage in Finland. So those who wish can purchase their yarns. As it is clear from the name, the company produces quite a lot of mohair yarns in different weight and structure. For instance there is bouclé and there is a mohair-linen blend and other intriguing thins. Today we discussed what I could do. The beginning of a scarf is by Marianne, started recently. It is the same stitch pattern as in my Võrguline (but different width and probably fewer edge stitches).
Varsti otsustame, mis kujuga rätik tuleb, siis läheb katsetamiseks ja kudumiseks. Hiljem teen õpetuse ka Ravelry jaoks.
We will decide soon upon the shape of the shawl, then it will be all swatching and knitting. Later I will make a pattern for Ravelry, too.

Ripskoe ilu/The beauty of garter stitch

Lihtne puuvillane topp. Pärst pesu pole kude nii "vedel", läheb tihkemaks.
A simple cotton top. After washing the fabric will not be so "liquid", it will become denser.

Kooskudumine/Knitting along

Võib liituda sviitri kooskudumisega Ravelrys. Praegu on õpetus tasuta!
You can join the KAL on Ravelry. For now the pattern recipe is free!
On ka muid kudu-uudiseid, sain ka midagi valmis, aga sellest järgmine kord.
There are some other knitting news, I've finished a knit but we shall talk about it another time.

Rätik edeneb/The shawl is progressing

Rätik edeneb, varsti saab valmis. Antud juhul tegelesin jääkidega ja malliks on vana hea poolpatendis asümmeetriline rätik, aga mul on veel mõni rätiku idee. Laupäeval räägimegi Tartus rätikute konstrueerimisest, kes teab, võib-olla jõuan midagi selleks ajaks alustada.
The shawl is progressing and will be finished soon. In this case I am dealing with leftovers and the pattern is the good old half-brioche stitch asymmeterical shawl but I have some more shawl ideas. On Saturday we shall discuss shawl constructions in Tartu and maybe I will be able to have started something before.
 
Pildil on näha, et kerad on päris "kõhnad".
You can see in the picture that the yarn balls are quite "slim".

Jälle vanad jäägid/Old leftovers again

Mul oli üks rätik, kus koos on tundmatu peenike meriino (ostetud Vilniuse kaltsukast, kus müüakse ka poolidel lõngu) ja leedu Biržai linane. Värv oli minu jaoks liiga plass. Harutasin, panin juurde peenikese musta puuvillase. Katsetasin nii ja naa, vahepeal tekkis paar rätiku ideed, aga ilmselt mitte sellele lõngale. Antud juhul otsustasin vana hea poolpatendi kasuks.
I had a shawl that was a combination of unknown laceweight merino (bought at a second hand store in Vilnius where they sell some yarns on cones) and Lithuanian linen from Biržai factory. The colour was too bleak for me. I frogged it and added thin black cotton. I tried out various options and meanwhile got some ideas for shawls but probably not of this yarn combo. In this case I opted for the good old half-brioche.
Sviitri õpetus on töös, varsti kuulutan välja kooskudumise. Jälgige infot!
Sweater pattern recipe is currently under construction and I will announce KAL soon. Stay with me!

Topp on valmis/The top is finished

Topp on valmis, aga väljas pildistamisega on häda: päike ja tuul. Seetõttu on üks pilt hoopis selline.
The top is finished but there is a problem with taking pictures outdoors: sun and wind. This is why one of the pictures is like this:
 
Ma ei ole veel kaalunud, arvan, et kulunud on u 150 g ehk 600 m. Koepind on mõnus. Ajab natuke viltu (mõingate linaste omadus), aga kandes pole märgata.
I have not weighed it yet, probably, some 150 g or 600 m is used up. The fabric is lovely. It is slightly biased (a feature of some linen yarns) but this is not visible when wearing.
